Our 2 friends booked this place as they had eaten there some years previously- and all 4 of us decided we would not be returning. Absolutely great location, restaurant overhangs river in charming ancient town but ...same owner, different chef probably, indifferent staff & bedrooms badly in need of refurbishment. We know they were only 60 euros per room but the beds were too lumpy/soft, the rooms in the attics were very hot all night & very noisy early morning, as they are onto a main street. There are expensive (120 euros) ones at the back but unless one arrives in time to use them for a few hours before sleep, hardly worth the money. The stairs are ancient, stone ,circular & narrow- be warned anyone with big Delsey-type suitcases- no help is proffered.
Dinner menu is 21 or 39 euros, quite a gap in prices. We took one look at what could have been an atmospheric restaurant over the river (table not cleared since lunch in the middle) and decided on the cheaper one. Food was adequate, served by surly waitress; wine was expensive- nobody checked if all was o.k. We didn't linger, which is unusual.
Breakfast next day was 10euros 50 per person & rather a farce- one girl, seemingly inexperienced & not too quick; no sign of owner, even at checkout. One couple waited 10 minutes, finally went in search of staff & came back frowning with no staff following.
This was & could yet be an excellent place- one can excuse the tired bedrooms & traffic noise (the latter unavoidable) if only the owner/staff made you feel actually welcome & if the food was better, with a menu priced in-between 21 & 39 euros.
